  • Crews were called out a few weeks ago to fill in the hole and secure one of the homes with steel underpinnings

  • But heavy rains over the weekend caused the hole to reappear bigger than ever on Saturday

  • Since then, authorities have been working around the clock to fill the hole with sand and cement

  • They believe both homes will be safe if the hole doesn't grow any larger

  • Both homes are evacuated

A sinkhole opened up on Saturday beneath two houses in Florida.

Workers spent Saturday dumping 15 truckloads of concrete into the hole and "hadn't put a dent in it,"  said Battalion Chief Pete Carpenter of The Villages Fire Rescue.
"It's just continuing to grow," he said.
The Villages is a sprawling 55-and-older community that straddles Sumter, Lake and Marion counties. The sinkhole is on the Sumter side.
The rainy season, which is starting in Florida, increases the chance of sinkholes, experts say.
"It's Florida," Carpenter said. "There are sinkholes everywhere." or 407-540-5981

Crews are expected to be there throughout the night to fill the hole.
Sumter County deputies say the hole first opened up about three weeks ago but was filled. Deputies believe it opened up again last night because of the rain.

  1. I remember seeing something like this on the news about a part of a cliff that fell. It was very interesting to see. It was right under a house so the house is like on the edge of the cliff. I wonder if they could repair it before the house falls.
